Don't have any photos. Gold specimens are somewhat difficult to photograph, even among the commercial photographers. They were sold long ago.

I imagine he meant after the sale...The vein I found there was limonite and quartz and the gold seemed pretty high karat ...Cheers, Unc

 I brought this specimen from Ron at the LSD outing last year. Prepped,treated and sold for a tidy profit.


Over 60 pieces similar to this were found in two separate patches years ago. The sizes range from a medium aspirin to a large egg. Half had quartz but the gold was thin in all of them. No "nuggets" to speak of. Four turned out  really exquisite. I'm sure most of you have seen gem grade spider webbed turquoise. Picture spider webbed thin gold veins running through pure white quartz. Of course they were treated which bleached the quartz.

Is this the one you found 2-3 years ago that someone dug up and left? Really nice one in any case.
